A piggy bank stood on the topmost shelf in the playroom. It was made of shiny porcelain and was so full of coins that it did not rattle.
All the other toys thought that the piggy bank was very rich and respected it for its wealth. The doll always sang lovely songs so that the piggy bank would notice her. The tin soldiers marched up and down in front of the piggy bank to protect it from being robbed.
One day, the little boy who owned the piggy bank brought another coin and put it in. But the piggy bank was so full that as another coin was pushed into it, it broke into pieces and fell on the floor. Somebody came and picked up all the coins.
Soon, another piggy bank was brought and placed on the topmost shelf. The new piggy bank did not rattle either, as it was empty!
